Vascular Care

Harrington is pleased to offer Vascular Medicine located within our UMass Memorial Health – Harrington medical office building located on 10 North Main Street in Charlton.

For more than 10 years, the Vascular Surgery Clinic and Wound Care Center has provided vascular surgery care in south central Massachusetts and northeastern Connecticut. Located in Charlton, patients have access to ultrasound testing at our on-site vascular lab, and same-day appointments for diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases. When needed, patients can be seen at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.

Focusing on the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of all arterial and venous disorders, our Vascular Care Program is under the direction of Dr. Douglas Jones, Dr. Laura Boitano and Nurse Practitoner Lisa Arello, board-certified vascular surgeons, specialists, and members of UMass Memorial Medical Group.

Vascular Conditions We Treat:
If you’re in need of vascular care, you can be confident our vascular surgeons and nurse practitioner offer everything you need from consultations to testing and follow-up care. We treat diseases and conditions of the arteries and veins, including:

  • Acute limb ischemia (sudden lack of blood flow to the limbs)
  • Aneurysms – aortic and thoracic
  • Carotid artery disease (blocked blood vessels that deliver blood to your brain and head)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in the leg or pelvis)
  • Diabetic foot ulcers and wound care
  • Mesenteric and renal disease (blocked blood vessels carrying blood to the intestines and kidneys)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD) (narrowing or blockage of the vessels that carry blood to the legs)
  • Varicose veins, spider veins

Vascular Surgery Services:
Our team offers the below procedures, some of which are done at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester or at our Vein Center in Westborough:

  • Minimally invasive (endovascular) and open procedures for all conditions of the arteries and veins.
  • Procedure to allow access for hemodialysis (process used to clean the blood when kidneys can’t), including arteriovenous fistula creation (connects an artery with a vein) for dialysis, and access maintenance
  • Aneurysm repair
  • Carotid endarterectomy, carotid stent
  • Lower extremity stents, bypass
  • Kidney artery and intestine artery stenting
  • Sclerotherapy for veins
  • Vein ablation

On-site Vascular Care:
Vascular lab services include:

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm screenings
  • Assessment for thoracic outlet stenosis (when blood vessels or nerves between your collarbone and your first rib are compressed)
  • Dialysis access and mapping
  • Duplex ultrasounds (uses two modes of ultrasound to look at blood flow) of the abdomen, carotid artery and extremities
  • Post-surgical follow-up scans
  • Renal artery exams
  • Testing for PAD
  • Ultrasounds of the veins
  • Vein mapping

Aortic Aneurysm Screening Program
If you’re 65 to 75 years old, ask your doctor for a referral to the UMass Memorial Program for Aortic Screening and Surveillance (UPASS) for an aortic aneurysm screening. We’re the only program of its kind in Massachusetts utilizing artificial intelligence to reduce and eventually eliminate preventable deaths from abdominal aortic aneurysms. If an aneurysm is found, you’ll be cared for and followed for life.

Limb Preservation Center
Our team of vascular surgeons, podiatrists, and wound care specialists treat patients at high risk for foot and leg amputation, particularly those with diabetes and peripheral artery disease.
